About Course

The Bachelor of Social Sciences (BSocSc) will challenge your thinking about the world and the people who live in it. The degree focuses on contemporary social issues, the ways in which humans interact with these issues and how such actions can be monitored and modified.

Bachelor of Social Sciences with the Faculty of Education

The FEDU Bachelor of Social Sciences is underpinned by a strong social justice perspective and is ideal for anyone wanting to make a difference in the lives of children and adults within family, education, community and/or workplace settings. It offers social science majors in areas such as Human Development, Education and Society and Digital Learning along with core papers on teaching and learning.

This degree will enable graduates to ensure that managing and promoting learning is not only the role of teachers, but parents, business people, salespeople, health professionals, and local and central government.

Education and Society today has close affinities with contemporary interdisciplinary fields exploring issues of social policy, culture, gender, work and leisure. Since education is as much concerned with who we might become as who we already are, it is relevant to all our collective and personal decision-making on questions of justice, rights and freedom.

Education and Society may also be taken as a second major or as a supporting subject within other undergraduate degrees, subject to academic approval of the Faculty or School of Studies in which the student is enrolled.
